Watch Caleb Johnson Sing “Sting Me” in American Idol 2014 Top 6 — April 23, 2014
We’re almost down to a handful of contestants on Season 13 of American Idol, which means the competition is the fiercest it’s been since we started back in January. Instead of the usual duet performances we’ve been seeing over the last few weeks, the hopefuls will be taking on two songs apiece. It’s sure to be an interesting challenge, as the numbers will be strikingly different from each other: one that’s a little bit country and another that’s rock ‘n’ roll. (Yeah, that was a Donny and Marie reference. Don’t judge us. It’s Idol’s fault.)
Hitting the stage for his first performance of the night is Caleb Johnson. He’s clearly in his element with the rock ‘n’ genre, as he takes on “Sting Me” by The Black Crowes. As we’ve come to expect from the 23-year-old singer, he’s all over the stage, working the audience and dancing with the band. Even when he has a slight mishap with the microphone, Caleb handles it like a pro.
The audience goes wild and J.Lo gives a standing ovation, but Harry sums it up best: “When you take a perfect song choice and you couple that with an incredible performance, it’s virtually impossible to beat.”
Do you think Caleb deserves to make it through to next week? Watch the video below and sound off in the comments!
